Transfer Students

Are you a student who has been attending another accredited institution, but wishes to complete a degree program at The University of Akron Wayne College?

You may have an associate degree from another college or are simply returning to school after an absence. Whatever the circumstances, we welcome your interest in The University of Akron Wayne College.

We understand you want to make the most of the credits you've earned elsewhere, so you probably have questions about college credit transfers. We'll do everything we can to guide you in that effort in an attempt to ensure prior college credit transfers to Wayne College. However, please note applications from transfer students with a cumulative GPA under 2.00 will require additional review before a final admission decision is made. 

You may complete UA's online application. You will have the opportunity to select Wayne as campus of attendance.
